PRIMARK ACCESSORY UPDATE

It's safe to say that Primark has some pretty amazing accessories on offer for Spring/Summer and I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted this gorgeous dupe of the Zara city bag. Obviously, the bag is faux leather which is what you would expect for a bargainous £12 but it really does look much more expensive.

On my photos it looks a lot more red than it does in reality. It's a vibrant, pretty coral colour and has an adjustable long strap, plenty of space inside and secure zip pockets insider for any essentials. I've not stopped using this bag since I bought it so I'm going to struggle to ignore the black and navy version...


I know it's not quite sandal weather just yet, but as I've just booked a holiday I feel like it's OK that I bought these rose gold metallic sandals. My tootsies have yet to be pedicured but when that's out of the way, I will be sporting these sandals with a shiny red polish.


Last but not least are these fabulous hot pink pointed courts for £9! The bargain hunter in me became a little overwhelmed when I spotted this pair of shoes as Topshop have done very similar pairs for £50-£60 so they seemed very reasonable. Primark also sell them in a range of other colours including nude and mint green. Sure they will all be gone in a flash at that price!


What accessories have you been investing in this Spring?

OOTD: COLOUR BLOCK


What I'm wearing:

Jacket - Topshop
Top - Zara
Collar Necklace - New Look
Jeans - H&M
Bag - Marks & Spencer
Ring -Topshop
Watch - DKNY

For work I usually have to wear more formal 'office attire' so when the weekend hits I always go crazy and want to wear outfits that make a bold statement.

I've had these super bright jeans for a few seasons now and it's surprising how well they have integrated into my wardrobe. If you don't have a pair I would definitely recommend you give a good coral/red pair a try as they are a great way to add a pop of colour to any outfit.

This time I've teamed them with my new layered top from Zara which has a beautiful illustration on the front which really reminds me of a water colour painting. I've been wearing my Topshop jacket and Marks & Spencer bag to death in my outfit posts lately as they are my staple pieces so I hope you're not too bored of seeing them! What can I say, there's a part of me that must be a creature of habit when it comes to fashion...

I really enjoyed doing this outfit post as the weather is much warmer now so there was no shivering outdoors whilst trying to get some good shots, agreed bloggers? It's nice to peel off the layers and leave your coat at home as spring is finally here!

 How do you like to wear colour?

SPRING BLUSH UPDATE

I've been a good girl as of late as I've been steering clear of beauty halls and using up all the products I already own. Blusher is one product that I have enough variations of to last me a lifetime so here's an update on my three favourites:

 MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Stereo Rose (left)

 I only own a couple of MAC products but this Skinfinish powder has to be my ultimate favourite. When you look at this shade you would think it's quite dark and shimmery, when it reality it gives a pretty, subtle glow that's perfect for the spring. I sweep this product across the face once I've applied foundation and bronzer and it really helps to give definition to the cheekbones. Sadly, I think this shade was limited edition *cries* but MAC do have similar shades available here.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Fresh Melon (middle)

This is the second time I've purchased the pot rouge as it's a make up bag staple for me. If you like a contoured effect, this product probably isn't for you as it's a light peach blush that gives a slight pop of colour and dewy effect. The mirrored compact makes it the perfect product to carry around, the formula doubles up as a lip colour and it lasts ages too. Here's all the available shades - it's far too difficult to choose one, right?

Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint in Pop of Pink (right)

Last but not least is this little pink tube of joy from Rimmel which adds a pretty 'flushed' look to pale skin. As this is a cheek tint, a little goes a long way so you only need a touch to perk up the colour of your cheeks. I like to apply this on tired skin days as it makes skin look fresh as a daisy! This product is also very reasonable at just under £5, snap it up here!

Which blush products do you enjoy wearing in Spring?

MY VOGUE FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS

I experienced so many highlights at Vogue Festival so this is just a snapshot of the weekend, but what I will say is, if you ever get the chance to buy tickets, definitely do it! The workshops provided a wonderful insight into every aspect of the fashion world and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear from amazing industry insiders such as Valentino Garavani, Naomi Campbell, Alexandra Shulman, Alexa Chung and Lucinda Chambers to name only a few!


I had a super time and I hope my pictures help to encapsulate the weekend for you!

I had the pleasure of meeting Kassi Cheir, blogger at www.makeupartistas.com 

Burberry were doing makeovers throughout the weekend but I didn't manage to get one due to the queue length - the dressing tables looked like beauty blogger heaven though!

WHAT I'M WEARING: & OTHER STORIES LONG TRENCH COAT

At weekend I had the pleasure of shooting my latest outfit post with Christina Davies, photographer at Fish2 Photography and I couldn't be happier with the results. If you're a blogger I'm sure you'll appreciate how difficult it is to find someone willing enough to take outfit shots for you so I was delighted to collaborate with Christina as she was super easy to work with and made sure we got all the right shots.

I wanted the main feature of my post to be my new long trench coat from & Other Stories. As you can see the colour isn't the most practical and it's probably the kind of coat that's suited to special occasions only but I loved it's bright, creamy hues and felt it was the perfect piece to take me into Spring.

The fabric is really soft and flows really well yet it has shoulder pads giving it some powerful structure so I like that contrast. I paired the coat with some printed trousers and a powder blue jacket from Zara - full outfit details are below.


What I'm wearing:

Coat - & Other Stories
Jacket and shoes - Zara
Top and trousers - Topshop

What do you think of my latest outfit post?

APRIL #GIVEAWAY: WIN A REVLON HIGHLIGHTING PALETTE OF YOUR CHOICE

It's been a while since I've done a beauty giveaway on my blog so as an Easter treat, and especially for those of you who no longer receive an Easter egg (like me, boo!) I have decided to giveaway one of these very pretty Revlon Highlighting Palettes.

A few weeks ago I invested in this palette in shade Rose Glow and so far it's been a dream to wear. The palette itself is quite similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (which I also love) but is more subtle and has a much lower price tag.

The Revlon version has beige,peachy, pale bronze and pretty pink tones which make it the perfect product to have in your handbag for when your complexion needs a sweep a colour and most importantly a radiant glow. I like the limited amount of glitter in this product as it's nice to look healthy without looking too shiny and overdone.



To be in with a chance of winning my beauty GIVEAWAY all you need to do is:

- Follow my Blog via Google Friend Connect
- Comment below with your email address and the Revlon Highlighting Palette shade you would like to win

-The palette comes in two variations, Rose Glow and Bronze Glow and you can take a look at them here to help you decide.

The winner will be announced on Friday 25th April at midnight!

Good Luck,
